Taking tea for charity

A fundraising day at a tea room will mean dignity for women suffering from chemotherapy induced hair loss.

Over �800 was raised at The Brewery Tea Rooms in Walkern in support of Cancer Hair Care’s work with cancer sufferers at Lister Hospital. A raffle with donated prizes and tea and cake sales helped to raise the funds which will pay for head scarves and hair care.

Sarah Parker, owner of the tea rooms said her team were very passionate about helping those less fortunate than themselves and thanked all those who had supported them.

“It was a truly successful day - we were still serving cakes and teas at 8pm!” She said.
